The City of Seattle 

WASHINGTON 

DEPARTMENT OF POLICE 

May I, 1944 

To the Mayor and City Council, 
City of Seattle, Washington. 

Honorable Members: 

In compliance with Section 5, Article VII of the City Charter, I herewith submit sta- 
tistical report of the business transacted by the Seattle Police Department for the year 
ending December 31, 1943. 

During the year of 1943 many improvements in our department have been made, and 
our activities and facilities expanded in order to meet new police problems constantly 
arising due to existing wartime conditions and the growth of the city and community in pop- 
ulation and industrial activity. The census shows an increase in the population of Seattle 
of 1 1 1,698 or 30 per cent over the year 1940. Such increase in population adds to the 
duties of the law enforcement agency and creates additional traffic problems, social prob- 
lems due to housing conditions, and problems in connection with juvenile delinquency and 
crime prevention. 

In order to meet these increasing problems, we have followed a policy of strict law- 
enforcement, the enlargement of our juvenile division and extension of crime-prevention 
activities in the various divisions of the department. From the statistics shown in the report, 
you will note that the general situation from the standpoint of law-enforcement and control 
of criminal activities has been adequately dealt with, even though the department has been 
handicapped in the way of manpower shortage. 

In my report of last year, the problem of providing proper facilities for the handling 
of City Jail prisoners was called to your attention. At this time, I am pleased to report that 
the enlargement of the King County Jail quarters for the handling of men and women prison- 
ers has been completed, and the overcrowded conditions existing in the City Jail one year 
ago have been relieved. We will now be able to transfer our long-term prisoners to the new 
wing of the County Jail. 

During the year 1 943 the rapid treatment center advocated by this department, was 
established for the care and rehabilitation of women prisoners affected with veneral disease. 
This center has been in operation for some time now and the results being accomplished are 
proving very satisfactory and are even better than anticipated. This has been an import- 
ant step in the right direction in the solution of the venereal disease problem in this com- 
munity and as a result, the venereal disease rate has declined. The constant vigilance of this 
department will be continued in our efforts to control the venereal disease problem.

SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNUAL REPORT, 1943 



The Kreml plan of traffic control is now being put into effect as rapidly as manpower 
facilities will permit, and as building alterations and improvements are installed. In order 
to provide additional space in the Public Safety Building, we have obtained a new police 
garage at Fifth Avenue and Cherry Street, which has been completed and is now ready for 
occupancy. The police assembly room will be transferred to the quarters formerly occu- 
pied by the police garage, and this will provide additional space on the main floor of the 
Public Safety Building for the enlarged Traffic Division and also space for the centralization 
of our record system. These improvements are being installed as rapidly as possible. 

We have received the splendid cooperation and assistance throughout the year of the 
Mayor and Cit} r Council and of the Police Advisory Commission in the improvements made 
in the operating facilities of this department, and the modernization program of the de- 
partment in methods of law enforcement. I wish to extend my appreciation to the City 
Council for their support in the appropriation of funds which have made these improve- 
ments possible. 

In the furtherance of our plan for better police administration, I would like to make 
at this time the following recommendations. In order to provide facilities for the rehabili- 
tation of men prisoners who are repeaters and chronic alcoholics now confined in the City 
Jail and boarded in the County Jail, a permanent work camp should be established in con- 
junction with King County, where prisoners from both the Police Department and the Sher- 
iff s office may be sent and a work plan for such prisoners carried out This department at 
the present time is establishing an athletic recreation center south of the city, and a small 
number of City Jail prisoners are being used each day there at outdoor work in the im- 
provement of these grounds. From this experiment, we are obtaining valuable informa- 
tion as to what can be accomplished through the employment of prisoners in work of 
this kind, and it is our intention to develop a small work camp at this location for the em- 
ployment of some City Jail prisoners. It has long been recognized by law-enforcement 
agencies that prisoners should not be confined in small quarters in idleness but should be pro- 
vided with healthful work as an aid in the rehabilitation program for such prisoners. 

I wish to extend my appreciation to the members of this department for their loyal 
support and faithful duty throughout the year in the handling of all problems necessitating 
police service. Full cooperation has been received from all law-enforcement agencies in 

this community throughout the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 




H. D. KIMSEY, Chief of Police.
